LONDON, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE: IGT), will showcase a broad portfolio of mobile innovations, systems solutions and unique game concepts at G2E Asia 2017, May 16–18 at the Venetian Macau. Gaming solutions within IGT's stand 601 will reflect the Company's commitment to its Asia-Pacific customers and will embody IGT's theme for the Show, "Innovations for Asia."
"IGT has established a leading systems presence throughout Asia and we are building upon that positive momentum with regionally relevant innovations such as PlaySpot, Cardless Connect and Sphinx 4D," said Walter Bugno, IGT CEO International. "IGT's G2E Asia 2017 portfolio is anchored in gaming innovations that enable our customers throughout Asia to engage players via multiple platforms, and reflect IGT's position as our customers' trusted growth partner."
Standout "Innovations for Asia" in IGT's stand will include:
IGT's award-winning PlaySpot™ mobile software solution that enables casino operators to capitalize on the immense regional popularity of table games throughout Asia. The PlaySpot mobile software solution gives players the option to place wagers on live roulette and baccarat games that are taking place on the casino floor, from their mobile devices, from any location within the casino. Players can enjoy live feeds from active tables on the casino floor, and can set table play criteria and be notified when a table meets the conditions and is "hot." IGT's PlaySpot technology also enables operators to offer a variety of other popular casino entertainment options such as sports betting, virtual sports betting and casino gaming via their patron loyalty mobile apps.
The Company's Cardless Connect™ systems solution, which enables players to use their smartphones to initiate patron loyalty sessions and seamlessly transfer funds to and from their existing player accounts. The award-winning technology eliminates the need for physical loyalty club cards and TITO tickets and can be embedded into a casino's mobile app, or serve as a standalone app. The Cardless Connect system enables casino operators to deploy advanced location-based, real-time mobile marketing, and can be paired with PlaySpot technology to put gameplay, patron loyalty, payment, and the ability to transfer funds all in the palm of a player's hand.
IGT's globally successful casino management systems solutions such as the IGT Advantage® system, Floor Manager and Mobile Responder. The Company will also feature a series of other systems solutions and bonusing applications that Asia-based operators can leverage to maximize the regional popularity of table games, and the universal relevance of mobile devices. IGT will spotlight its Table Manager solution, an automated system for rating and rewarding players, and its Lucky Chip® Bonus, a bonus module that can drive play and create surprise jackpots for table game players.
The award-winning SPHINX 4D™ game on the CrystalCurve™ TRUE 4D™ cabinet. The SPHINX 4D game offers a multi-sensory experience that enhances its glasses-free 3D technology with mid-air haptic and gesture-based technologies that enable players to touch and manipulate 3D objects emerging from the screen.
IGT's Skillcade™, omni-channel Lucky's Quest™ game. The Lucky's Quest game is a for-wager, casual-style game that features a map-based progression narrative starring a dragon named Lucky. A player's progress within the game can be transferred from a mobile device to a gaming machine and back, allowing for a seamless player experience across devices and channels. The Lucky's Quest game is the first omni-channel skill-based game to share progressive jackpots across channels.
Trade show attendees can experience other compelling IGT games for Asia in the Company's stand such as:
- The multi-level progressive title Cai Yun Heng Tong™. A follow-up theme to the highly successful Gong Xi Fa Cai® game and sister-game to Wan Shi Ru Yi™ game, Cai Yun Heng Tong offers players a high-volatility four-level progressive.
- The Rong Hua Fu Gui™ and Gold and Dragon II games on the CrystalDual® cabinet. The four-level progressive video slot games are designed for the Paltronic Link and include a mystery trigger that unlocks the progressive pick bonus feature. Both titles were developed to meet the unique player preferences of the Asia-Pacific region.
- IGT's new TRUE 3D game title the Phoenix Rising™ 3D game. Housed on the AXXIS® 3D cabinet, the Phoenix Rising 3D game features bold, fiery graphics and offers players an immersive glasses-free 3D gaming experience.
